hear about the bill is that it doesn't go after any of the special interest tax breaks that democrats would like to see help finance an end to the sequester. democrats don't like the sequester level. we feel this is an austerity budget that is doing damage to the economy. i think if we had an economy, if we had a budget that was making an investment in infrastructure and jobs and we were able to pass the president's jobs bill, our economy would have fully recovered from their session by now. so i don't think any of this is good economics. the only question is, is this less worst economics than going through with the sequester. >> wasn't the sequester good for you guys? wasn't the sequester good for democrats in that you got those defense cuts you wanted and you got to paint republicans as being cold-hearted, slashing those social programs. >> i don't think it was good for democrats at all. and democrats don't think it was good for the country. and we're not willing to trade even a short-term political advantage for something that's damage the country. a lot of us feel that the defense
